Livestock Market Re-Development Progress

Published Wednesday, 13th July 2016

Contractors make good progress with £5.5 million re-development of livestock market in Melton Mowbray.

Morgan Sindall the Council's contractor have now established their offices at Melton Mowbray Market. The demolition of the former cattle sheds and cattle pens is complete, new access ways have been prepared into and around the site and more major earthworks commenced on 4th July 2016, Morgan Sindall's Project Manager Andy Tompkins confirmed that we are on track for completion of the development in Spring 2017 .
Activities at the market on a Tuesday have continued with very little impact and the auctioneers are delighted with the way things are progressing.

CEO Hugh Brown said "Everyone is very excited at the prospect of our new cattle building and impressed by the progress of the project to date.  I would like to thank all of our customers for their understanding and co-operation during the works."


Cllr Joe Orson Chairman of the Rural, Economic & Environmental Affairs Committee said:
“It is good to now see changes on the ground, we can expect to see significant changes at the livestock market over the coming months and the market remains very much open for business throughout the development , so we are encouraging everyone to come down to the market and see the changes that are happening on site.”


Morgan Sindall was awarded this project through the East Midlands Property Alliance (EMPA) SCAPE framework
